Day before yesterday I traded my 2005 Tundra for the new 2008 Tundra crew cab 4X4. I love it. The new one has Mechlen Tires, A/T. My 2005 had Bridgestones, a cheap tire I had trouble with. Are the Mechlen tires an upgrade or just an alternative to the Dunlops I see on most of the Tundras? I might have another cheap tire on my truck but I like the brand. I'm going to buy a travel trailer and upgraded to have more pulling power. I'm hoping this tire will be safe for towing and I do not need to change them out.
